Did top end rebuild and checked clutch a month ago.
Broke the clutch hub and pushed her into the corner.
Pulled the tyres off for the mistress and now shes all lonely with a broken clutch and wheels ready for a tight rope challenge.


Poor Gasser.....

Poor bike Col. What did you manage to do to the clutch hub? Pics or it didn't happen!

I rolled mine out of the shed all clean this morning. Then rode it for 100kms through all sorts of mud, rocks, roots, sand, creeks, grass.. You name it! We rode it. Up hills, down hills, fire trails, road, single track. She sung a song all day long. Bound the new chain up in deep sand and thought I had broke it already. She got pretty tight!! Brought her home, and washed her up, and now shes about to get warmed up before we do it all again next week!!

Re-jetted the bike about 45 times, I'll put a detailed account in my GG Rider jetting thread for you to try and figure out Jake.

Changed the gear oil, put a flush through it, wow 16 hours/450k's is too long between changes. Magnet was covered in crud and oil was BLACK. I knew it was time last ride though, the squawk was back and it was losing its ability to slip.

Actually did this couple of weeks back.

Tall guts seat foam with selle dalla valle camel seat cover, looks sweet and much more comfy than std, also sourced longer dzus fastener for the quick release kit so the seat foam isn't squished.

Hey Nathan. What flush did you put through it? Any good? How often do you do it? Cheers

My clutch has the dreaded squawk some of these bikes are known for. Mind you since I've modified the basket and inner hub (drilled more holes to allow more oil flow) it rarely does it unless the oil is getting old.
I flush it every oil change now (10-15hrs depending on if I remember) and use Wynns or similar brand engine oil flush. Same as you put in your car. Think it was recommended by nutty in a thread on here somewhere but I swear by it now seeing all the extra crap that comes out after flushing it.

Started a list of things to order for my top end:
Piston Kit (suggested brands?)
Little End bearing (do these actually need replacing every top end?)
Head o-ring gaskets
Base Gaskets (2 x .5mm)
Head water inlet gasket
Reed valve gaskets
Exhaust O-rings.

Also plan on pulling the main clutch cover and inspecting clutch plates and fibers and PV tension, from memory this gasket is reuse able isn't it?

Ill be calling Scotties for the parts or is there somewhere else people suggest buying it all from.
